"Greaves Motorsport is a very strong and professional organisation and I have no doubt that we are going to do an amazing job together in Le Mans."
Team principal Jacob Greaves added: “This is very positive step towards achieving our goal at Le Mans, that is to win.
"Of course to do that we must first finish, so having an experienced, fast driver, with a proven track record, to join Memo and Julien is an important element in our plan.
